Alonso and Button made a spoof visit to Brazilian GP podium

The moment appears that in fun or irritability. Fernando Alonso and McLaren team-mate Jenson Button made a spoof visit to Brazilian GP podium, following both drivers failed to enter Q2 for the eighth time this season.

The double world champion made another stoppage during the qualifying Q1 without a lap-time, and team-mate Button managed P17 for tomorrow race.

“I’m not sure if we’ll get in trouble for that, but it was a lot of fun,” said Button. “It was the most fun I’ve had this weekend.”

Spectators very much impressed with McLaren duo’s naughty entertainment, but annoyance is rising at McLaren with the team’s new partnership with Honda failing to deliver any solid improvement during the season.

“Unfortunately, apart from the jokes, there is a lot of frustration,” said Alonso.

“Next year especially, we need to learn from all these problems and mistakes and not repeat them anymore.”

Fernando told reporters earlier in the year to judge his decision to move to McLaren ‘in November’. Reminded of that comment, Alonso replied: “It’s a question for the team, for Mr Arai, for Ron [Dennis. They need to evaluate how this season was and what actions they will take for next year.”

Jenson Button says that podium visit was his highlight of the weekend.

“I’m not sure if we’ll get in trouble for that, but it was a lot of fun,” the Brit said. “The most fun I’ve had this weekend.
